Abstract:Western economic aid for the reconstruction of Poland's economy should be viewed in the light of the long‐term motives of the donor countries and its effectiveness in terms of achieving the transition to a market economy. This paper intends to present a straightforward and honest attempt to analyse if Western economic aid for the former Eastern Bloc countries (here the case of Poland) actually attains its targets, and to identify its weaknesses and deficiencies.
